July 2013 Article

Cibolo Lodge doesn’t hold a regular meeting in July, instead hosting a “Social” where members are encouraged to invite their friends and those interested in Hermann Sons insurance. This month’s social will be held on the 14th at Harmon’s Bar-B-Que, so be sure to watch for pictures next month!

The Flag Day Ceremony, June 14th at Cibolo City Hall was a success. This moving ceremony, dedicated each year to the memory of Brother Pat Osborn, is a fitting tribute to  our flag. This year’s festivities were cut a little short, due to rain. We were sad the ceremony ended abruptly, but are thankful for the rain.

July also marks mid-year for the lodge. Officers will meet on the 28th to finalize the schedule for the last half of 2013. It has certainly passed quickly, so far!!

Looking ahead, August is traditionally or Memorial service in honor of our Brothers and Sisters who have passed in the last year. This service is hosted by Vice-President Sherry Rakowitz and is always quite memorable. September will start the planning for our annual Christmas Party and the “Best Homemade Pie” contest. Wouldn’t you like to be a judge for that one? October brings the annual, and much anticipated Halloween Costume Contest. The highlight of the year is the Christmas Party to be held on Sunday, December 8th. Please watch this newsletter for details.

Our next regular meeting is Thursday, August 8th, a week later than our normal meeting date, but traditionally when the August meeting is held. This meeting will pay out the pot of $52 for our Special Drawing Contest. Remember, to qualify for this contest, you must be present to win!
